DesignNotes.com was founded out of a need to use the Internet to
improve electronics and computer design through sharing. As the
founder of DesignNotes.com, I have been a design engineer for the
last 25 years and have been fortunate to have had outstanding
recognition for it (see the Awards section).
But I realized that I did not have the lock on all great designs or
all creativity. During my career I needed help at times and it was
from other's examples and teachers who paved the way before me that
I was able to improve upon their designs and create whole new
fields of technology and new cutting edge products.
Because of reviewing other's patents, having had a mentor who gave
of his time to teach me, an outstanding professor, or working side
by side with highly creative individuals, I was able to improve my
design skills. Now with the Internet, I figured I could learn from
even a greater array of people. Unfortunately, there was no single
site where I could go and ask questions, review other's designs to
save time, find on-line tutorials, find cost effective design
tools, equipment, and prototyping products to help me in my every
day practice. So, I created this site to accomplish just that.
